    For Ronnie Beasley
    All I can think about is when we were kids and we were in our last year at school and Ronnie Viet Nam. We have been such friends and Ronnie fit right in. What a great fellow he was.
    I pray your whole family knows I love you all dearly and I pray for you all to have God’s comfort.

    Ann Coggins, I am so sorry to hear about Ronnie, He, Linda, and Brenda, we were all best friends when we went to school. I believe Ronnie went to Viet Nam with my brother David or the same time. This breaks my heart and wish I had known, I would love to have gone yesterday to pay my respects. My family will be praying for the Beasley Family during this Holiday Season. Love the Beasley Family.

    I’m not sure why I said I would comment on here everyday, when I know I wouldn’t have been able to keep up. I think I was just feeling with grief and would do anything to see my papas face again or have any touch of evidence of him. I do miss my papa very much and I wish he was here with me at this very moment but he’s not, we used to dance all the time and we had our own little song we would always sing. I remember every memory of my papa the best I can, I have so
    Many pictures and I miss him so much.
